Surprisingly doesn’t contain as many nature-loving hippies as one might think.
Anyway, thanks again to Howitzer!
Cenarius had at least 4 children: Zaetar, the eldest, the progenitor of the Centaur; Remulos, one of the younger sons and keeper of the Moonglade; Ordanus, a random NPC killed in a level 20 Horde quest, and the Dryad, progenitor of the dryads.
In the RPG books, Cenarius had a bastard son named Centaur, supposedly the ancestor of the species of the same name. While it is well known that Cenarius’s eldest son, Zaetar, is the actual ancestor of the centaur tribes, 3 of the tribes, the Krenka, Marauders and the Stonetalon are not confirmed to have their origins with Zaetar, possibly lending credence to Centaur’s existence.
Unlike most other children of Cenarius who use druidic magic, the Centaur use a twisted form of shamanistic magic, though not quite as dark as what Garrosh has been doing recently.
The Magnataur are also distant relatives of Cenarius, though their precise relationship is not described. In the RPG books, they once were one of the dominant races of the world, with evidence pointing at the existence of a few Magnataur kingdoms, where the early humans were kept as slaves.
A handful of rugs made of Centaur skin can be found among the Blackrock orcs of Blackrock Spire. This suggests the possibility of a Centaur breed in the Eastern Kingdoms which was wiped out by the Blackrock orcs.
Remulos, the Keeper of the Moonglade, is also the one who introduced the Tauren into the Cenarion Circle, despite the protests of Fandral Staghelm. In contrast, Remulos opposed Staghelm’s project of a new world tree, Teldrassil.
Despite usually hating each other, some centaur, such as the Centaur Pariah in vanilla WoW, dream of the day where the tribes will be united. In Cataclysm, the Alliance and Horde help unite the Kolkar, Magram and Gelkis tribes against the threat of the Burning Legion.
